Investor Visa Program

New Zealand offers two residency-by-investment options. The Investor 1 Visa (aka Investor Plus) requires a $10-million NZD investment for three years, whereas the Investor 2 Visa requires a $3-million NZD investment for four years. The Investor 1 offers more flexibility than the Investor 2. After the investment period is over, you are eligible for permanent residency. New Zealand citizenship is possible after five years of residency in the country.
